Lunesdale Buddy is easily overlooked in this company but there's little between the remaining trio on official ratings. Highland Acclaim is the most exposed but his fourth at Newmarket last month is decent form. Galvanize has every chance on last year's third in a York maiden, but SOUL BROTHER may just edge it. He finished clear of the rest when finding only odds-on shot G Force too good at Newcastle last time and is taken to go one better in this.
